Do you recall all that crap a couple of years back about Dark Side of the Moon synching with the Wizard of Oz? This is more of the same - pure coincidence and wishful thinking.

Pink Floyd may not have done this on purpose, but the way that Money drops in just as the Technicolor scene begins is sublime.

Really nice audio-visual experience, especially with some psychedelic enhancements ;)

Rob, calm down man, no need to get excited. No-one's suggesting that it's some kind of cosmic conspiracy.

Unlike the theories about "Dark Side" and "Wizard", I didn't see anywhere where anyone claimed that this was pre-meditated or that Echoes was composed with 2001 in mind. The only comments I saw on the sites were that it was pretty cool and that it worked, and I agree.

PG - I am pretty far from excited so I'll thank you to take your patronising tone elsewhere. So it's 'cool and it works' - doesn't negate what I said, it's still just coincidence and wishful thinking that makes it so.

And in answer to your earlier question, a Grateful Dead cover of Echoes would have been an unmitigated disaster.

Ouch...you hurt my heart..

Of course it;s a coincidence. Just enjoy it, or don't, for what it is, a great piece of music paired with a great piece of movie, nothing more, nothing less.

I like coffee and I like peanut butter, but I don't stir one into the other. Truth be told, both Echoes and 2001 hold special places in my heart - they both spoke deeply to me in my long-departed youth and resonate for me still. I prefer to keep them separate and undiluted. But each to their own of course. It's nearly 2 am (how did that happen?) so I'm getting out of your hair now. Goodnight, Mr Gel.

This gave me a little smile and laugh just when I needed it most! Dealing with miles of red tape with regards to University admins here...

That '66 TDIH helps too :)

If you want to leave your troubles behind, you don't have to ask. If you want to go and lose your mind, you don't have to ask. You already know!

Rob, clearly you have never pressed play on the Rotterdam Dark Star at the precise moment in Spartacus when the third slave says, "I am Spartacus!"....

And you wonder why?

Was it really worth thinking up your faintly (very faintly) amusing user name for that?

As far as I know it is, but I don't know very far. Have you been trying to get in touch?

is it something you can give me a brief rundown on here? Not going to be around too much longer as it's 1 am here now.

The wolf stays in his lair a lot more these days having better things to do with his time than run around after the sheep in this fold. And good luck to him.
